Photo of the Week: Week 1

Well it’s the beginning of a new year and I figure now is as good a time as any to start a new project here on the blog. I guess it’s not so much of a project as it a commitment. In an effort to push myself to be creating more work on a consistent basis, I’m starting a weekly photo post. Every Monday I will be posting a new image and my goal will be to have produced each image from sometime within the two weeks prior each post. Hopefully, a year from now I’ll have a nice stack of 52 images to look back on!

Here’s my fist image, it was taken exactly 2 weeks ago out in Kananaskis Country. The Kananaskis river at the Canoe Meadows area has a very intense colour to it and the rapids make for great abstract type photos. I tried several different compositions with shutter speeds ranging from 1/4 second all the way up to 13 seconds. This one was shot at 1/5th of a second and ended up as one of my favourites from the shoot. Hope you like it too!

  1. Nice one Ian! I would say that the shutter speed was about perfect for capturing the motion and keeping some detail. The colour of that water always amazes me and I think you have captured it very accurately. I look forward to seeing what you come up with each week!
